High Point MX National | Photo Report

June 20, 2017

We return to racing action after having a weekend off from the Lucas Oil Pro Motocross series. This past weekend the circuit landed in Mt. Morris, PA for the Red Bull High Point National. As we see things head east we will also see an increase in the number of FXR athletes lining up to qualify. Here is a look at race day from the High Point track.
